How do truck accidents and auto accidents differ?

Truck drivers and trucking companies have legal obligations above and beyond those imposed on regular drivers. Truck drivers must be qualified, licensed individuals who scrupulously abide by federal and state trucking regulations. Trucking companies also must carry more insurance coverage than regular motorists because truck accidents can result in catastrophic damage and truck drivers are considered professionals. As a result, the compensation that is paid out in a trucking accident lawsuit is often more than in a standard auto accident settlement.
